“Very good food!”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

Five friends andIi went to celebrate a birthday; a wonderful evening of many offerings of food, the salad bar and hot bar is amazing and good. It is worth a visit for an enjoyable evening, the wait staff does not hurry the guests.

“Not Great, but not bad..”
Reviewed April 28, 2014 via mobile

I guess I have have been spoiled, b/c I have been to the Brazilian steakhouse in NYC..

Carnaval was OK. The meats lacked the special spicing that makes the flavors really special. Many times the meats offered were so overcooked i could not even get anything cooked medium.

I suppose there is nothing better in Sioux Falls

“Excellent food!!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

This is a place where you can seriously overeat! As the waiters bring more and more meat around, you will be trying to decide whether you want more steak, pork or lamb! The salad bar is extensive as are the side dishes. Well worth the price!

“Brazil, Here We Come”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Most restaurants serve the same old thing and when you find something out of the ordinary, you just have to try it out. Carnaval is such a place. Gauchos serve you a continual supply of meats that they cordially cut from skewers at your table and you must guard against too much food. Indicators at each table alert the waiters to come to you even though they're not usually needed. How about a dessert of deep-fried bananas?

“Best restaurant in Sioux Falls!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

I can't say enough about the Carnival Brazilian Grill in Sioux Falls, SD. You'll begin your evening with a properly trained server, who will provide excellent customer service and attend promptly to your every need. Starting with the salad bar, try the tomatoes and cheese, then don't pass up the pineapple mango dressing, it's fantastic! I typically skip the "hot bar" with mashed potatoes, soup, and whatever else they are offering and jump right from the salad to the Gauchos! Try the Parmesan steak, it's to die for! The house sirloin is also very good, as is the lamb, and the chicken. When the grilled pineapple comes around, TAKE IT, every time! Ha!

We seriously love this place, and try to spend as many special occasions dining here as finances permit.
